Renault India, in collaboration with Marvel Comics, on Monday launched Super Hero edition of the Kwid priced at 4.34 lakh. The limited edition model is available in two versions – Iron Man and Captain America. All superhero fans can now buy a Renault Kwid with a sprinkling of design elements of either Captain America or Iron Man. The Kwid has been the best-selling Renault model for quite some time now and has been given constant design upgrades ever since it was launched in 2015.
Renault had launched the second-anniversary edition of the Kwid along with the Climber and the Kwid ‘Live For More’ Edition. There is no mechanical change in the Kwid Super Hero edition and the 1.0-litre, the three-pot engine continues to deliver 68PS and a peak torque of 91Nm like in the standard version. The car is available with a 5-speed manual transmission as well as an AMT option that Renault calls ‘Easy-R.’ Speaking on the launch, Sumit Sawhney, Country CEO and Managing Director, said, “With this latest Renault KWID Super Hero Edition, we offer specially designed Kwid for Super Hero fans”. Through this, our approach we take our next step by exceeding customer expectations through design, innovation, and quality”.
Let us take a look at certain features of Renault Kwid:
- Front and rear terrain protectors
